Sir Alex Ferguson has a wealth of attacking options to choose from and it is thought that after a great start to the season Dimitar Berbatov is expected to get the nod to partner Rooney for Sunday’s game against Fulham.
United fans witnessed the rare sight of a Dimitar Berbatov smile last Monday after scoring the opening goal and they will be hoping it becomes a familiar sight at Old Trafford. After two seasons of under-whelming performances fuelled accusations he has not been worth his price tag, he looks to have finally found his shooting boots. It could be a good season for him at United on the condition that he consistently plays as well as he has in the last few games.
Wayne Rooney’s goal drought continued last week and as he struggled to find his form from last season, prompting Sir Alex Ferguson to state his belief that one goal is all it will take for Rooney to be back at his best. Rooney has a number of players snapping at his heels to get a place in the first team and Sir Alex will be hoping his patience and understanding of Rooney’s dip in form pays off.
Fulham have so far managed to stave off Arsenal’s attempts to sign Mark Schwarzer. Mark Hughes will be hoping he is fit and ready to feature in this game as he will sorely missed if unable to recover from injury in time.
United have an excellent record against Fulham, however they have lost twice to them in the last two seasons at Craven Cottage including a comprehensive 3-0 defeat last season. Fulham will make it tough, but I expect United to win by a couple of goals, given the excellent start so many of their players have had to the season.
